North Carroll regional concert to feature youthful musicians


ANYONE INTERESTED in instrumental music would enjoy the North Carroll Regional Band Concert tonight at 7 p.m. at North Carroll High School.

The regional concert, the first since 1994, features instrumentalists at three age levels. The fifth-grade students, from Hampstead, Manchester and Spring Garden Elementary schools, have received two school years of instruction. They will play one program.

The fifth-graders will be followed by the eighth-grade band from North Carroll Middle School, whose members have five years of instruction. Finishing the performance will be the North Carroll High School band.

"The purpose of the regional concert is so the community can see musical development," as years of practice and performance add up, said Karen Rogers, instrumental teacher at Spring Garden Elementary. "For younger students, they see other musical directors, other types of music, a greater band repertoire."

Golfers, take note: Spaces are first-come, first-served for the Boy Scout Troop 380 Golf Tournament at Oakmont Green on April 26.
